Writing a review of this pitiful “expedition of a past lover”. So exploitative. So cheap. Such nonsense.

YASSS BLACK COOL. This image is all the real of Black cool culture.
Take 5 minutes to watch this interview of Jesse Williams take on the Michael Dunn trial
If only I could be as polite and civil he was in the interview.
They not hearing you though Jessie. And the fact that she wants to note wealth as privilege. However, she doesn’t want to mention white privilege. These media shitheads make me so fucking sick.
Harlem 1963. Malcolm X rally.
Q. Speaking strictly, from your point of view, how would you talk to an angry black man ready to tear up the town?
BALDWIN: I only know angry black men. You mean, how would I talk to someone twenty years younger than I?
Q. That’s right.
BALDWIN: That would be very difficult to do. I’ve tried, and I try it, and I try it all the time. All I can tell him, really, is I’m with you, whatever that means. I’ll tell you what I can’t tell him. I can’t tell him to submit and let himself be slaughtered. I can’t tell him that he should not arm, because the white people are armed. I can’t tell him that he should not let anybody rape his sister, or his wife, or his mother. Because that’s where it’s at. And what I try to tell him, too, is if you’re ready to blow the cat’s head off—because it could come to that—try not to hate him, for the sake of your soul’s salvation and for no other reason. But let’s try to be better, let’s try—no matter what it costs us— to be better than they are. You haven’t got to hate them, though we do have to be free. It’s a waste of time to hate them.
TELL ME WHAT’S THE DEAL,
CAUSE IT REALLY SEEMS TO ME BONAFIDE IS THE OLD DEAL,
FAKE IS THE NEW REAL.
